Muslim Lawmaker Arrested and Charged With Numerous Felonies

Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell was the first Muslim representative ever to be elected to the Pennsylvania Legislature. She just began serving in March and already she's been removed from office after being accused of committing a number of felony offenses.

Not so long ago she criticized the state legislature for opening the session with a Christian prayer. What does she expect and would she have objected if it were an Islamic prayer? I doubt it, it's just fake outrage and double standards.

Now she's getting a taste of her own medicine because she's facing some serious jail time for stealing $500,000 dollars from a charity.

Among the charges brought against her are theft, perjury, and tampering. This came about after it was discovered that the charity for kids that she founded was missing $500,000.

According to The Blaze,

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a statement Thursday that Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell (D) had been charged with numerous charges of theft, perjury, and tampering.

Johnson-Harrell had previously made headlines for being offended by a Christian prayer offered before a session of the Pennsylvania Legislature in March.
Shapiro said that she had stolen money from Motivations Education & Consultation Associates, or MECA, a charity meant to collect donations to help the homeless, seniors and children.

He alleged that she spent the money on "vacations, designer clothing, luxury car payments, real estate purchases, past-due mortgage payments, and other personal expenses."

Shapiro said in the statement that she had turned herself in, had confessed to the crimes, and had agreed to leave the Pennsylvania Legislature.

"Her theft knew no bounds," he said.

This is the attorney general making these claims against her, not just some random lawyer. This is the head honcho.

Of course, Johnson-Harrell denies all of these allegations, “I am saddened and dismayed by the nature of the allegations brought against me today. I vigorously dispute many of these allegations, which generally pertain to before I took office and I intend to accept responsibility for any actions that were inappropriate,”
